The PARANOiA series is a series of songs featured in the DanceDanceRevolution series. Debuting with the eponymous song of the same name in 1998's Dance Dance Revolution, the series is known to be the first non-official "boss song" series, as these were the hardest songs prior to the introduction of MAX 300. The PARANOiA series has been considered a flagship song series in DDR, along with TRIP MACHINE.

TriviaEdit

  • R10K by tiger YAMATO, which appeared in DDR Ultramix 2, borrows PARANOiA's "Sound!" soundbite.
  • MAX. (period), a boss song exclusive to the Japanese PS2 release of DDR Extreme, shares some similarities with PARANOiA Revolution: they both can be thought of as "Thank you for playing" songs, and they both have similar background videos (the former involves selecting PARANOiA in the console version of DDR 1stMIX, and the latter involves selecting PARANOiA Revolution in DDR X3 VS 2ndMIX's 2ndMIX mode).
  • The logo for PARANOiA has changed in DanceDanceRevolution X. However, PARANOiA KCET ~clean mix~ and PARANOiA-Respect- still have their old logos in X JP CS.
